Returning to TV screens this week is the Sundance original series Rectify. At the start of the first season we saw Daniel Holden (Aden Young) released from 19 years on death row thanks to the tireless efforts of his sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) and newly uncovered DNA evidence suggesting he may not have been responsible for the rape and murder of his high school sweetheart. However, nothing is cut and dry in Rectify‘s small town of Paulie, Georgia and many bitter residents, including Daniel’s stepbrother Teddy Talbot Jr (Clayne Crawford), still believe Daniel to be guilty. At the end of season one that bitterness boiled over as a group of vigilantes took justice into their own hands. Picking up where it left off, Rectify season 2 finds the Holden-Talbot family dealing with the aftermath of yet another tragic act of violence. Rectify also stars Adelaide Clemens, J Smith-Cameron, Luke Kirby, Bruce McKinnon, and Jake Austin Walker.
Earlier this week I joined a number of other journalists at Fonuts Bakery in Los Angeles where we met with the cast to discuss season two. They talked about what sets Rectify apart, the tremendous writing of creator Ray McKinnon, Daniel’s mental state following last season’s violent climax, and more. Check out what Aden Young, Adelaide Clemens, and Bruce McKinnon had to say about Rectify Season 2 after the jump.
